I think I just figured out the answer to my question. I looked at the excursion on Celebrity's site and the excursion leaves at 11:30. That kind of messes up the whole day. I don't think we'll...

I agree. I just called Celebrity and she said that she can cancel the Canadian dollar one and rebook it in USD. She said that not all the employees will do it. I guess it might pay to call the...
